Thanks to FDOT and TBARTA teaming up to launch Startup 275, your carpool can do more than save you money, it could earn you big bucks! A creative campaign targeting would-be entrepreneurs who carpool along the I-275 construction zone between Westshore and downtown Tampa, Startup 275 is a new spin on carpooling that will earn one carpool team $10K to jumpstart an idea voted on by the public. Tampa-based Cox Media radio station 97X, the presenting sponsor, will be giving away the cash prize.
Startup 275’s goal is to increase interest in carpooling, promote safer commutes in the I-275 improvement zone, and rally the community around resident-driven big ideas created by residents who drive… together. Eligible commuters must register their carpool and travel I-275 at any point between the Howard Frankland Bridge and the Hillsborough River at least 12 days a month. Plus, be among the first 500 carpools to do this to and from work or school a minimum of 12 days each month and a $25 Visa® Gift Card is yours… not once, but every month!
There’s no better time to register your carpool or start up a new carpool. What are you waiting for? Get the low down on carpooling, stimulating cash-earning big ideas, rules, FAQs, tips and more at Startup 275.
